I don't think it is extreme at all.

Joe, that is cool that you and your neighbors had an agreement so you guys could have plenty of space to do as you please. Sounds like it works great for you guys :) However in Roos case she has made it clear that she is not a people person. Which I can identify with....when I am at home I want to be left alone. Also where I came from trespassing is a good way to get bullets whizzing past your ears. People take "Private Property, No Trespassing" very serious. What other reason would someone live two hours from town out in the middle of nowhere, if they didn't want to be left alone...LOL It is proper etiquette to ask permission to cross someones property. If the neighbor would of least asked it would of showed an effort on her part to do the right thing...but she didn't. For me, that says something about her character.

Roo said she has no desire to make a riding buddy out of the neighbor. If I didn't want to become buddies with my neighbor I probably wouldn't invite her to ride on my property. No one wants to sit in their house waiting for the neighbor to leave your place so you can ride in peace by yourself..LOL.

A larger problem can arise, that of continual use of a piece of land. I've know of two instances whereby this turned into an expensive legal issue. Please research Land Easement whereby one can then legally use the road, trail etc and you can't block them from doing so. Perhaps it doesn't apply here but the knowledge is good to have. In the mean time, post no trespassing signs. Those signs are all over here to stop hunters from entering the land. There you go - take up target shooting. Add that to your No Trespassing Signs.

I can understand the liability part to a point. Its the its only one person that abuts you that you have such a huge issue with. With it just being 1 person and a trail why not have her sign a riding release. And explain to her in kind words ( Not threatening ) That if she is to use the trail she should also help with the maintenance of said trail.
There is nothing worst then having two neighbors side by side angry at each other. It just creates a awful atmosphere to live in. And there may be some day your going to need someone who knows horses like you to help you in an emergency. She may be the only one around in such a case. But hurt her feelings or piss her off you may be on your own if that ever happens.
Be kind places to ride are far and few between. But also protect yourself have her sign the release. Also post the liability act signs

Says something about alot of peoples character that this is even an issue. I guess its a southern thing. We don't have any kinda agreement. It wouldnt have even occurred to me to ask. We put up no tresspassing signs to keep the people from up North out, not our neighbors.

Sorry, riding across someone else's land is one of those cases where apologizing later is no good, you MUST ask permission first. Assuming that because you've met me ONCE, it's okay to ignore no trespassing signs and ride my land is not cool at all.

The way to handle this is strike up a relationship with the landowner FIRST, ask permission nicely, offer to sign a waiver and offer to help clear trails, do some other small service in return for the privledge or offer your porperty to ride on in exchange.

What really hacks me off about situations like this is that someone like your thoughtless neighbor can undo YEARS of my careful cultivation of neighboring land owners and piecing together of parcels to ride on with their carelessness.

For me it says something, it would be no different than someone I have only met once walking into my house when I am not there.

LOL....a southern thing....you wouldn't have to have to worry about us "Yanks" (I guess that's what your referring to as the people up North)trespassing anyhow, because we would ask first.

Joe - I find it laughable that you are making a leap from someone wanting respect of their property to some sort of indicator of that person's character.

^^actually I originally made the comment about it being an indication of character. LOL
The point I was trying to make is above, if someone comes on your property uninvited when you are not there is no different than someone walking into your house uninvited. That person has no sense of personal space and doesn't respect your bubble....

I should of worded by original statement better. LOL

No, my post was in direct response to Joe saying:
